All CARES Act funds for students have been allocated

Cincinnati State has allocated all of the Federal CARES Act Emergency Grant Funds available for students, and no new applications will be accepted.

Director of Financial Aid Penny Parsons said about 2,800 Cincinnati State students received funds.

In April 2020, Cincinnati State received $2,114,058 in funding from the CARES Act to provide emergency relief money that was sent directly (via a paper check) to eligible students.

Funds were distributed to full-time students (enrolled for at least 12 credits) and part-time students (enrolled for at least 6 credits) during Spring, Summer, and the beginning of Fall Semester.

The last few applications for funds are still being processed. A report on distribution of funds will be issued after all allocations are completed.

Please don't drive or walk near Main Building

College Drive access to the Main Building on Clifton Campus remains closed (with the exception of access to portions of Parking Lot D) while assessment and repair processes continue.

In addition, on-campus students and employees are asked not to walk near the Main Building, since some activities taking place adjacent to the building involve heavy equipment and/or hazardous materials.

Additional updates on the assessment and recovery processes will be available in future editions of Daily News.

The College Police Department, the Facilities Department, and others charged with safely continuing the efforts to restore the Main Building appreciate your cooperation.
